tales of running and jumping ("After I Was Thrown in the River and Before I
Drowned") to a bitterly comic meditation on suicide and friendship ("Climbing

sense of mortality. Though full of bursts of levity and humor, the book is
deeply informed by the troubled times in which it was written.
collection includes many never -before-published stories, and all
previously- published stories have been significantly revised."
